Mimi, Thanks for sharing your recipe with me. You have to remember, you are dealing with a novice here when it comes to cooking. So something like deviled eggs could be pretty complicated for me. <img src='style_emoticons//unsure.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’unsure.gif’ /> Or my husband would say I'm just looking for an excuse not to cook! <img src='style_emoticons//wink.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’wink.gif’ />
Lisa, I too love deviled eggs and I like your idea of adding ham. I'll have to try that when I make them the next time.

If someone want to try a very easy cake (no butter, no sugar) I give you here below the recipe
Ingredients for a bakin-tin diam 24 cm.
(better a bakin-tin which can be opened laterally so that the cake can be slided out)
180 gr. Macaroons (bitter biscuits?)
180 gr. dry biscuits
bitter powdered cocoa
apples (medium size)
peel and cut apples (small slices)
mince or pound together the two types of biscuits
1.put on the bottom of the bakin-tin some paper for oven and cover the surface with minced biscuits
2.do a first sheet of sliced apples and polverize with cocoa
go on in this way till the ingredients are finished
put the bakin-tin (VERY IMPORTANT COVER IT WITH A COVER OR WITH AN ALUMINIUM SHEET)
in the over at 160? for about 1 hour and 15 minutes
Iím absolutely not a good cooker and this is the only one cake I can do.LisaMemberJuly 27, 2004 at 8:09 pmPost count: 2664
Loved your photos of the Italian dishes…..someday we will have to visit Italy! <img src='style_emoticons//wink.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’wink.gif’ />MicheleMemberAugust 1, 2004 at 3:23 amPost count: 874
Just wanted you all to know that tonight I cooked…I think they call it baking…for Sunday dinner (7/31). It took quite a while as I couldn't find the instruction book for the range and forgot how to turn on the oven, but eventually I found it.
So…dinner for Sunday, 7/31 will be baked boneless spare ribs in my outstanding barbeque sauce…served with baked potatoes, (with butter AND sour cream & chives,) mixed veggies (broccoli, cauliflower, carrots), a caesar salad and rolls.
Dessert is questionable….must think about it….any suggestions would be welcome! <img src='style_emoticons//huh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’huh.gif’ />ckaMemberAugust 1, 2004 at 6:07 pmPost count: 74
At Ann's suggestion (prodding) this is what we're having for Sunday dinner, about 7:00 p.m., here in Idaho:
Salmon (from Alaska) grilled
Local corn on the cob, grilled
Local green beans with bacon pieces — yes even a little of the grease for flavor (just like my mother used to make them)
For dessert we're having local white peaches that are so sweet you don't add any sugar or sweetener.
Michele, hope your baked potatoes are from Idaho. We also have some bacon bits on ours too. A suggestion for dessert would be a cake I make that is so simple. It starts with yellow cake mix covered with crushed pineapple and the top is vanilla pudding, cream cheese and cool whip. I usually make it the night before and keep in the fridge because you add the pineapple and other toppings while the cake is still hot. I use this cake whenever I have to serve or for potlucks. There's never any left to bring home.
Have a great day everyone! We're staying indoors as long as we can as it's going to be 100 or more today, but it's DRY heat. There still lots of smoke here in the valley from fires in Oregon and Washington.

Sorry folks but I stuck to my diet tonight. I opened a tin of tuna, added a little vinegar, salt, pepper and low fat mayonnaise, plus some Ryvita Biscuits and……that was it! BUT LAST NIGHT, I went out for dinner and had………
so today was a No, No!
I love spare ribs and the best place for those is in the States! Michele, your dinner sounds scrumptious as do all the others……..now back to solids…….. <img src='style_emoticons//cool.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’cool.gif’ />

Here's an idea for dessert for those who don't like to bake and need to watch their calories. It tastes like Boston Cream Pie.
Slice of pound cake (store bought, of course <img src='style_emoticons//tongue.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’tongue.gif’ /> )
Jello fat free pudding snack (chocolate)
Scoop of any low fat, sugar free vanilla ice cream
Dab of Cool Whip
Top it off with a Cherry
It looks and tastes like you worked all day! <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ />MicheleMemberAugust 2, 2004 at 10:26 amPost count: 874
Thank you for your wonderful suggestions for dessert(s). They all sounded fabulous. Martha…will definitely try the Boston Creme recipe one of these days…soon! Unfortunately, everyone was stuffed so we ended up having simply coffee with a little Bailey's, or, in 2 cases, Bailey's with a little coffee. Hey, it worked.
Wish I had logged back on yesterday to find your ideas. <img src='style_emoticons//sad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’sad.gif’ />

I have a complaint!!!
This thread will do my computer no good whatsoever. I'm afraid that the drooling will short circuit my system. Please either stop or send me samples. <img src='style_emoticons//wink.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’wink.gif’ />MicheleMemberAugust 3, 2004 at 12:15 amPost count: 874
Nancy – You're TOO funny! <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> Will mail you a rib with sauce…now get a napkin and mop up!NancyMemberAugust 3, 2004 at 5:35 pmPost count: 515
Gee Michele, you're terrific, first you send me the dust fairy now I'll look out for food. I am really missing my Sunday dinners because of my renovations. By the time I get back I'm too tired to cook! Sunday we had steak and a salad. For a while every time my brother-in-law turned up we were eating spag bol and he asked my husband if that was all I could cook <img src='style_emoticons//smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ /> It was just something I could make a batch of and take out of the freezer and cook quickly.
